3rd Year In A Row!

Hard to believe we've won BOTH of these national wedding awards 3 years in a row!

This is entirely possible thanks to the amazing team at Elite. Joe, Tobias, Dae, Steve, Spencer, Russel, Tegan, Nogui, Juwan, and our amazing couples and clients!

Elite Wins Again!

We're proud to announce that Elite DJ solutions has won both major national awards for excellence at weddings. Each one represents only the top-tier of wedding professionals and getting both is unheard of, much less both two years in a row! These awards are only due to the dedication and excellence of our staff and the hard work we put into delivering amazing events. Thanks for everyone's kind words, without which we wouldn't have this recognition, we're honored!

Elite Wins Coveted Wedding Wire Award

Elite is proud to announce that we've won the coveted Wedding Wire Couples Choice Award for 2017.

This honor is awarded based on the quality and number of client reviews and feedback. An example of the type of review we receive is: 

"Mother of the Bride and I couldn't ask for more. On time, professional and made the day complete. We broke the dance kidding. We had a fantastic time. He did both ceremony and reception music. Highly recommend!!!"


Elite is unique, not just among affordable DJ companies, but among ALL DJs. Only 2% of wedding pros win the couples choice award, and hardly anyone wins both the Couples Choice Award and the Knot's Best of Weddings Award.

We're proud that our commitment to service and couples is recognized by such a prestigious award. It's entirely due to the hard work our DJs put into their events - and we're blessed to have some of the best in the business working with Elite DJ Solutions.

ABC-11 Features Elite DJ Joe Eastmann

By Andrea Blanford


A winter storm threatening to bring significant snowfall and dangerous driving conditions to North Carolina, isn't stopping a Raleigh couple from tying the knot this weekend.

In fact, if Mother Nature wanted to stop a wedding, she picked the wrong bride.

Tiffany Lesnik's sister Heather already got married in the thick of Hurricane Matthew, so no amount of snow would stall nuptials this time around.

"My dad actually predicted it because the day my sister got married he said, 'Heather's getting married in Hurricane Matthew, you're going to have a blizzard on your wedding day,'" said Tiffany. "And here it is."

While blizzard-like conditions are not in the forecast, plenty of snowfall is expected to hit Raleigh on Saturday, the day Tiffany and her groom Richard Waugaman have been planning as their wedding day for two years.

The wedding date, 1-7-17, wasn't chosen at random. The couple met nearly seven years ago on the 7th of the month; Richard proposed on the 7th, and they were determined to get married on the 7th.

Even with that much riding on such a special date, the couple moved ahead with exchanging their vows in a small ceremony Friday the 6th, just in case the weather forces them to postpone their originally planned ceremony and reception.

"The biggest part of the day is not your wedding itself, it's just being able to marry the person you love," said Heather, whose October wedding in the midst of Hurricane Matthew will be remembered as involving lots of tarps and umbrellas, and everyone getting drenched in the rain.

Joe Eastmann, a wedding DJ, kept the party going through Heather's stormy wedding and he's ready to do it again for one more Lesnik sister.

"I traveled through the wind and rain and we made it happen," he said of Heather's wedding. "We did not lose power. Thank God, we did press forward."

Turns out, Tiffany and Rich are fans of winter weather. They even built the theme of their wedding around a winter wonderland, complete with snowflakes and ice.

While they never anticipated a real snow storm to strike on their big day, they're taking it in stride.

"Ours is going to be different than anybody else's," Tiffany said.

"It's a good story to share," Richard added with a smile.
